Target Audience: Academic/Research Staff - all levels
Format of Event: Information Session with an Opportunity for a Q&A.
This session will provide an overview of Horizon Europe – the next EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation – based on the European Commission’s proposal from early June. The presentation will include information about the structure and funding priorities under the new programme, as well as opportunities for UK organisations to shape the new initiative before its planned adoption in 2019.
Horizon Europe will build on the achievements and success of the previous research and innovation programme, Horizon 2020, and keep the EU at the forefront of global research and innovation. Horizon Europe is the most ambitious research and innovation programme ever.
The proposal for Horizon Europe, released on 7 June (press release), includes a requested budget of €100 billion (2021-2027).
Attendees will have an opportunity to ask questions of Blazej Thomas and representatives of the International Team in RKES. UKRO, the European Office of the UK Research Councils based in Brussels, provides expert advice on EU funding for research, innovation and higher education.
This session is aimed as staff across all disciplines.
As a result of the session, participants will:
- Have an understanding of the proposed structure of Horizon Europe.
- Learn about the main new initiative.
- Hear how UK organisations can shape these new initiatives before planned adoption of the programme in 2019.
Delivered By: Blazej Thomas, European Advisor, UK Research Office (UKRO).
